Best ramen in Vancouver! In terms of flavour, preparation and innovation, it is the best I've encountered thus far. The use of organic ingredients definitely gives it a positive twist on this Japanese working-class staple.
I had the Extra BBQ Pork Ramen with Miso flavour. Here, as opposed to Kintaro, the regular Pork Shoulder pieces were accompanied by fatty boneless Pork Sparerib. Portion size was surprisingly good. Every part of it was delicious. I'm sure the noodles are identical to Kintaro's, but it's the other ingredients that make the difference. No choice of the Light, Medium, Rich here, just perfect!
My girlfriend had the Bamboo Charcoal Dark Miso Ramen. It was very unique in flavour, and definitely also a fine choice.
The atmosphere is quite a bit more upscale than Kintaro, and the service was great when we were there (maybe it was because there were few customers).
I'll definitely go back! Can't wait to try the Spicy Organic Chicken Ramen next time!
